Taos, New Mexico has a well deserved reputation as a free spirited creative community. Last weekend they blocked off streets and created a runway for the 'Glam Trash Fashion Show', a community celebration of wearable art and 'trashion' (trash fashion). My friend in Taos, Sara Basehart, sent me an email today with this cool video of the event, take a look!
Sara has a shop in Taos called Seconds Eco Store. Seconds is our most unique customer: they're a retailer of Escama bags AND they're our un-official repair shop! Missing a zipper? Got a loose thread? Sara and her friends at Seconds Eco have helped us refurbish numerous damaged bags. (Sara is actually in the video, "I'm the one with the horns and the swagger")
